Michael Mills named TMS Fellow

Michael Mills, inteProf. Michael Millsrim chair and McDougal Professor of materials science and engineering, is one of six individuals named a Fellow of the Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS) in 2015. The highest award bestowed by TMS, it recognizes members for outstanding contributions to the practice of metallurgy, materials science and technology. 

Mills was recognized for “leadership and significant contributions in elucidating the deformation mechanisms of high-temperature structural materials using advanced characterization and modeling.”

His primary research interests focus on the relationship between microstructure and properties of materials, with special emphasis on transmission electron microscopy techniques which make it possible to the study the structure and chemistry of materials down to atomic dimensions. 

A member of the College of Engineering faculty since 1994, Mills earned his PhD degree in Materials Science and Engineering from Stanford University in 1985. He is also a Fellow of the American Society for Metals. 

The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society is a member-driven international professional society dedicated to fostering the exchange of learning and ideas across the field of materials science and engineering, from minerals processing and primary metals production, to basic research and the advanced applications of materials.
